Data import overview Schools Online allows you to import data from another administrative system. The files you can import MUST BE IMPORTED IN THIS ORDER.

Your import files must use a CSV (comma separated value) format.

South Australia Students (StudImp.dat*) Teachers (TchrImp.dat*) Classes (ClassImp.dat*) SACE Enrolments (EnrlImp.dat*) VET Enrolments (VETRImp.dat*) CEA Data (CEAImp.dat*)

* These file names refer to EDSAS users only.

Important import information You can only import one file at a time. Do not attempt to have two imports running at the same time. We strongly recommend that imports should be performed by just one staff member with

administrative rights to Schools Online. Always import students and teachers before classes and enrolments. If your student import file includes a student with a name identical to a student already in

the database, the import will fail because the system will assume you are trying to create a duplicate. Remove the student from the import file and try again. If the second student is not a duplicate, you will need to enter that student manually through the Create Student screen.

Make sure your classes exist before importing SACE enrolments. VET classes will be created for your VET enrolments during the import process. Administrative systems like EDSAS will save this file in the C:\Temp, C:\WINNT\Temp or

C:\Windows\Temp directory on your hard disk.

Import warnings If warnings are generated the valid records will be taken on and the invalid records will be rejected, these warnings will be reported via an error message log.

Examples of warnings are:

Students

A student already exists on the database matching on surname, gender, date of birth and first character of given name.

The student (identified using the SACE Board Registration number) belongs to another school.

Student Code already used at the school (unique for school). A students given name and/or surname contains non-printable characters.

Teachers

The teacher for the class does not exist.

You may need to import your teachers before importing SACE classes.

Enrolments

The student for a SACE enrolment does not exist on the database.

You may need to import your students first.

The student (identified using the SACE Board Registration number) belongs to another school.

The status of the enrolment is set to 'C' (Completed).

VET

The student for a VET enrolment does not exist.

You may need to import your students first.

The student (identified using the SACE Board Registration number) belongs to another school.

Data import example There are times when the data you want to import into Schools Online from another administrative system needs to be checked and perhaps modified before importing it. The steps outlined in this section describe how the details of new Year 10 students (for example) can be imported into Schools Online from EDSAS, DUX, MAZE or another administrative system and examined in Excel.

Exporting from your administrative system Data must be first exported from the other system. Each administrative system will have its own way of exporting data. Most often the export routine will create a text file with the individual fields separated by a tab or comma, and sometimes quote marks are used to surround each piece of data.

Checking the file format When your export file has been created, you can open it in Wordpad or Notepad to check the data format. This can be done by locating the file in Windows Explorer and double-clicking the name of the file. It may open directly in your default text editor, or you may be prompted to select a text editor from a list.

You can make changes to individual items in the file through your text editor. Don't forget to save the changes. If the problems can't be fixed easily in your text editor, load Excel and open your export text file. Follow the prompts to tell Excel how to interpret the data.

Using the Excel import wizard 1. The first section of the file will be displayed in the window at the bottom of the Text

Import Wizard - Step 1 of 3 screen.

Data Exchange 1 Select Delimited or Fixed Width

2. When you view the section of your import file displayed in the bottom window of the first Import Wizard screen you will see that each piece of information (field) is surrounded by quotes (" ") and separated from the fields on either side by a comma (,). This indicates

Page 8: Importing and Exporting Guide South Australia

Importing and Exporting Guide Schools Online

6 Revision date: November 26, 2013 12:01 PM

that the fields are Delimited (i.e. separated by commas, spaces, semi-colons, tabs or some other character), not fixed length fields.

3. Choose Delimited from the Original data type list and click Next to move to the Text Import Wizard - Step 2 of 3.

Data Exchange 2 Choose the type of delimiter

4. We have already seen from Data Exchange 2 that the data in the import file is delimited with commas, so select Comma from the Delimiters list. When you select an appropriate delimiter, lines will appear in the Data preview window to indicate how the data will be divided into cells in the spreadsheet.

5. Choose an appropriate text qualifier from the list. (In this example, quotes surround each item of data, so " is chosen from the list.)

6. Click Next to display the Text Import Wizard - Step 3 of 3 screen.

Data Exchange 3 Convert Date and Numeric fields to Text format

All columns in the data file are formatted as General. Dates and numeric data with leading zeros MUST be formatted to Text.

7. Highlight the first column containing a date or numeric data and click Text in the Column data format window at the top of the screen. Continue across the file until all date and numeric columns show Text instead of General at the top of the column.

8. Click Finish to display your data in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.

Checking the file format in Excel You can now view your data in an Excel spreadsheet.

Data Exchange 4 The import data is displayed in an Excel spreadsheet

It is important that the data in the spreadsheet is arranged in the same order as shown in the student import file format. A complete list of import and export file formats can be found in the Data Exchange section of Schools Online Help.

Compare the order of the columns with the order of the fields shown in the student import file format list. (See Data Exchange 11 Students import file format on page 13.) If your file differs, change the order of the columns to match. (In the “Data Exchange 4” example, Surname (column D) comes before Given Names (column E). These columns need to be reversed.)

Making changes in the file format To reverse the order of the Surname and Given Names fields:

1. Insert a new column before the Surname column. To do this highlight the Surname column by clicking at the top of the column and choose Insert then Column. This will create a new empty column (column D).

Page 11: Importing and Exporting Guide South Australia

Schools Online Importing and Exporting Guide

Revision date: November 26, 2013 12:01 PM 9

Data Exchange 5 Reversing two columns in the spreadsheet

2. Cut the Given Names column (now column F) and paste the data into the new column (column D) in front of the Surname column (now column E).

3. Delete the column that previously held the Given Names data (column F). Highlight the empty column and choose Delete from the Edit menu list. The columns are now reversed.

Further along the file I can see that the State Phone Code (column I) is shown as 8 (Data Exchange 6). We know it should be 08 so this means that this column was not set to Text in the Excel Import Wizard.

Data Exchange 6 Editing the format of a column

To set the cell format to ‘text’ for column I:

1. Highlight the column and choose Cells from the Format menu list. 2. Select Text from the list and click OK to apply the changes.

Page 13: Importing and Exporting Guide South Australia

Schools Online Importing and Exporting Guide

Revision date: November 26, 2013 12:01 PM 11

Data Exchange 7 Export file is being prepared

The value 8 has now moved to the left of the column, demonstrating that it has been formatted to Text.

The cells having ‘8’ as their value are missing the leading zero required for this text field. Change the first value from 8 to 08. Press Enter to save the change then copy the new value down the whole column.

Further data file considerations Missing Data

Create empty columns for missing data. If your file does not have some of the fields listed in the Students import file format, create columns to match. If these extra columns are indicated as Optional (false), they may be left blank. If they are indicated as Mandatory (true), they must contain data. Columns after Year Level may be omitted if your file does not include data beyond that field.

Data Accuracy

Check the accuracy of the data and make changes as necessary. Errors need to be corrected at this stage.

Date of Birth

Check the format of the Date of Birth column. If the format is not correct, students will be brought into Schools Online with a birth date of 1/1/1950. The column should be formatted to Text and the dates should show in the format dd/mm/yyyy (e.g. 02/05/1984).

Saving the file in Excel To save the edited data file from Excel:

1. Select Save As from the File menu to save the file. You will see the file name "Students.dat" or a repetition of the name of the file you opened in Excel.

2. Remove the quote marks and .dat from the file name. 3. Click the down arrow to the right of the Save as type field and select csv (comma

separated value) from the list.

Data Exchange 9 Select csv from the list of file types

4. Decide where you want to save the file and choose that location at the top of the screen. 5. Click on the Save button. A message will ask whether you want to save the file in csv

format.

Data Exchange 10 Accept the csv format and save

6. Click on the Yes button.
